Wheatstone will show a cloud version of Layers Stream running on Amazon Web Services at the NAB Show.
Layers Stream software is part of its Layers Software Suite. It includes stream provisioning, audio processing and metadata support; it also has software modules for running instances of FM/HD processing and mixing in cloud data centers such as AWS or on-premise servers.
“Layers streaming instances running in AWS can be brought up rapidly and torn down rapidly and controlled through a browser-like user interface,” the company said.
“Layers Stream includes audio processing designed specifically for streaming applications and Lua transformation filters to convert metadata input from any automation system into any required output format, including Triton Digital, for transmission to a CDN.”
The suite also has a Layers FM module and a Layers Mix module for radio and television. The latter has a mix engine and Glass virtual mixers for laptop, tablet or touchscreen with routing, logic, automixing and native IP audio integration with automation systems.
“Layers modules can be used for remote or REMI applications between studios and cloud data centers or for extending studio failover redundancy across multiple cloud data centers,” the company said. “In the case of an on-prem server, Layers Software Suite can replace racks of processors, PCs and mix engines in the rack room.”
Wheatstone will be in Booth W3000.
